My 4th Dead show.
I was hangin' with my best friend, we were out surfing in Seaside Park, NJ and an older surfing buddy of ours came down to the beach and asked us if we wanted to go to NYC to see the last Dead show at The Fillmore East. My friend and I went to our first 2 shows together so we said "Sure!" We drove up to Jersey City to pick up another older friend who had been with us at our first 2 shows. Got into the city, parked, strolled up to the box office, plunked down $4.50 each for standing room only tix and walked in and the New Riders were playing. 30 years later I downloaded the complete show including NRPS and it was 5 cd's! After 30 years that St. Stephen tease gave me goosebumps, and still does to this day! Pig was on fire (as he always was!) Bill Graham was Bill fuckin' Graham! Classic!

Attractive set list, but not the best of the year by any means.

Awesome show. Everything sounds GOOD! That is, good in the absolute sense.

It all fits together so tight!

Worth 5 stars for an epic final performance of Alligator alone. The jam before gdtrfb is some of the best playing they ever did. I like that Pig's organ is actually audible; he is the most under-rated keyboard player they ever had. Great sound, no wonder they released this on CD.

if i ever have to show one how the dead sounded, i guess this will be my choice. it's one of my favorite shows, setlist is super, sound is vivid and now even better i feel (hard to tell on cheap headphones), first i thought it leaks a bit in bass, but it's fine. i don't mind the additional track cuts. i know most mp3 players can't handle them proper. you have two options to counter this.

1st buy a different player (ha, ha, i had ONE cheap korean brandless player who handled the prebuffering properly, if you like this from a branded one you pay a lot lot more. a small piece of software and you pay a lot more, grrr.... i also like classical music and always thought it's mean, :( yeah, especially you, what a stupid idea to sort tracks only by title and give me no chance to sort by filename, i thought you like classical music how could one listen proper to that without prebuffering and sort by filename?)

2nd download it and join the tracks toghether to your longings. there exists free software which does the job quite good (i.e. mp3directcut).

rrschzw28 - I'm sure I'm not alone in being bored with the point you're trying to make.

Get it into your head that: it's history, it's been done, you can't change it afterwards, for FOOK's sake, it's like saying you think the Mona Lisa was painted the wrong way round ......... YOUR CONSTANT WHINING AIN'T GONNA CHANGE NOTHIN'.

If you really want to hear these 'pieces' uninterrupted without breaks, learn how to burn them onto CD and click the "No Gaps Between Tracks" button.

Learn to look past the end of your nose.

Get a life ...........

And give everyone else a fuckin' break from your constant whining.
Reviewer: rrschwz28 - - November 3, 2012
Subject: Jam?!
Thanks for breaking up Alligator/GDTR/Cold Rain & Snow even more with 'Drums' and 'Jam'; so instead of two interruptions we get four.

Drums? What possessed Billy? And a Jam? At a Dead show? Who woulda thunk?

Nothing personal, just trying to make a point.

Subject: Greatness
What a show! Every song is excellent. Two that are different than any other renditions I've heard are New Minglewood Blues and Greatest Story. I really like the Hard to Handle and Drums. The entire show, especially set II, is phenomenal, really! Great transitions between many tunes...

Great sound quality, too.
Reviewer: IkeV - - May 29, 2012
Subject: A gem!
The sound quality on this one is fantastic. The show is amazing. Really catches the Dead during their transition from the blues band they were in the 60's to the band I grew up with. Great show!

About 38 years ago I bought a vinyl bootleg with this Minglewood, Second That Emotion and Cold Rain. Old friends...

Ron's organ is clear in this mix!

Pretty good sq here but I still prefer 105925. It's a bit cleaner and has better levels. Sorry to spoil the love fest.
